Many environmental factors impact people’s health, ability to function, risk of health complications, and quality of life. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the nonmedical factors that influence health outcomes.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition provides essential services addressing various aspects of SDOH through home meal delivery and other support services. 

What Are Social Determinants of Health?

Socioeconomic factors impact how people address their health concerns. According to Public Health Reports, “Evidence has accumulated . . . pointing to socioeconomic factors such as income, wealth, and education as the fundamental causes of a wide range of health outcomes.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition partners with state and community providers and programs to ensure vulnerable individuals in California have access to the support and resources they need to live healthy and fulfilling lives.

Social determinants of health are grouped into five primary categories:

#1. Economic stability

#2. Education access and quality

#3. Healthcare access and quality

#4. Neighborhood and built environment

#5. Social and community context

Some examples of specific SDOH include safe housing, reliable transportation, and consistent access to nutritional food. Everyone deserves access to a safe living environment, emotional comfort, healthcare support, education, and healthy food.

How Does SDOH Impact Health?

SDOH influence how individuals and communities approach healthcare. Many people experience preventable health issues because they are unaware of the risks or do not have access to essential resources and services. 

Everyone has different needs and issues affecting their ability to function day-to-day. SDOH impact an individual’s health by doing the following: 

  • Shaping government policies and systemic factors affecting people’s health, comfort, and safety 
  • Influencing access to a comprehensive education 
  • Shaping cultural and societal norms and expectations
  • Influencing housing factors, including physical safety 
  • Affecting emotional resilience
  • Determining access to nutritious food
  • Impacting people’s ability to access relevant and life-changing healthcare services

Mental and physical health are directly linked. SDOH factors impacting one will affect the other, making it essential for communities and individuals to take advantage of services like medically tailored meals and personalized weekly meal deliveries. People cope better with chronic conditions and recover from medical issues more effectively if they have access to regular nourishing meals and positive social connections. 

How Does LifeSpring Home Nutrition Address Issues Related to SDOH?

LifeSpring Home Nutrition addresses multiple social determinants of health, including:

  • Economic Stability: Providing meals reduces the financial strain of buying groceries or ordering fast food, especially for individuals with limited income due to illness, age-related issues, or disability.
  • Education: Meal delivery services include nutritional information, ensuring people understand the role of diet in managing their overall health.
  • Health and Health Care: Medically tailored meals (MTMs) and personalized meal plans improve health outcomes by ensuring people with specific health conditions have access to nutritionally appropriate meals.
  • Neighborhood and Built Environment: Individuals living in “food deserts” have limited access to healthy food, and meal delivery services provide nutritious options. 

MTM services play a significant role in addressing social determinants of health. Tailored meals improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals with health issues impacting their diet or ability to prepare nourishing meals. MTMs help people manage chronic conditions, reduce healthcare costs, and improve medication adherence.

How Do Communities Benefit From Companies Prioritizing SDOH Issues?

Whole communities are impacted when individuals struggle with issues related to SDOH. Communities experience a ripple effect when SDOH negatively affect people. For example, if members of the community cannot access nutritional meals, it leads to more instances of preventable disease and strains the local healthcare system, potentially reducing resources for individuals experiencing medical emergencies. 

Communities thrive when companies focus on SDOH, addressing the following: 

  • Enhancing overall health and wellness 
  • Minimizing disparities and reducing barriers to healthcare access 
  • Fostering a sense of interconnectedness and community support 
  • Improving local economic stability by contributing financially to the community 
  • Supporting education and career opportunities for marginalized groups
  • Building resilience to healthcare challenges 
  • Improving overall quality of life for individuals in the community 

LifeSpring Home Nutrition plays an essential role in protecting and supporting the health of individuals living in Californian communities. 

What Health Risk Factors Have the Highest Impact on SDOH?

Many factors influence how people react to various challenges related to SDOH. For example, individuals with a strong support system, access to healthcare resources, and financial stability have an easier time managing health-related issues. However, people with no support system, few resources, and financial instability may find it challenging to navigate the healthcare process and get the help they need. Companies like LifeSpring Home Nutrition help disadvantaged or vulnerable individuals access the support they need to cope with stressors and overcome challenges related to SDOH.

Access to Nourishing Meals and Essential Resources

Ensuring everyone has access to nourishing meals and essential resources, including MTMs, uplifts communities and individuals by prioritizing overall health, safety, and comfort. Communities save on healthcare costs and improve overall social wellness by ensuring people with health issues have access to appropriate food delivery services. 

According to Contemporary Clinical Trials, “Pilot studies of MTM . . . demonstrated up to 50% fewer hospitalizations, reduced healthcare utilization and costs.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers MTMs, personalized meal planning, nutritional coaching, and other important dietary services.

Social determinants of health (SDOH) play a vital role in how people access treatment and manage overall health. LifeSpring Home Nutrition addresses issues related to SDOH by filling the gap in healthcare caused by “food deserts” and other factors impacting diet and nutrition.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
